It's a snowboard. No, it's a Segway. No, it's a cart for tech-savvy golfers

It's a golf cart combined with a Segway combined with a skateboard, and Arrowhead Golf Club in Newstead is unveiling them this week.

The contraptions primarily are made by Golf Skate Caddy, Arrowhead's choice, or GolfBoard, which Transit Valley Country Club in East Amherst offers. Arrowhead appears to be the first publicly accessible course in the area offering the units.

Arrowhead's new owners, Clinton Holcomb and Lucas James, said the skate caddies are part of their efforts to attract younger, tech-savvy golfers. Starting Thursday, they'll have five or six available for use.

Golfers stand on them like a snowboard, and hold onto a handle as they shift their body weight to turn. A skate caddy would cost $15 more than a regular cart. The owners plan to show off two caddies in Lancaster's Fourth of July parade.
